World Cup SA-2010 June 13th, Ghana vs. Serbia

Hopes were up and high all around Ghana, Not certain of the number of goals the BlackStars of Ghana would produce but sure of a win against the Serbians. Germany, Australia, Serbia and Ghana are in group D. Sunday morning? Very joyful, not forgetting –so colorful, my eyes beheld a lot; Branded cars, Ghanaian flags, scarves, handkerchiefs, Vuvuzela’s, etc. Others who couldn’t fight the fever wore the BlackStar jersey to church. The truth is, I had none of these with me but my heart was Red, Gold, Black, and Green and had a Black star in the middle!

My Church, Christ Apostolic Church Int. – La Assembly said a prayer for the BlackStars after service; it was same in many other churches in Ghana and around the Globe. Members of my church (part of Ghana’s over 23 million coaches) had lots to say, others predicted the scores and in all Ghana’s BlackStars was the winning team. I wanted just 2 goals for the stars and of course a win! Others wanted 3 goals; my Mum settled for 5 goals and had in mind players to score those goals for her…LoLz! The Stars had to do their best; the rest was done by prayer to God for His Divine support. Some minutes to the game, “the streets went dead”, not even a car was seen on the busiest roads, it meant well- Ghana was behind the screens!

I sat on tenterhooks through the first half, am sure you felt same. It took time to gather some “Vim” for the second half, hoping to see the balls in the net of the Serbian team. Asamoah Gyan, Dede Ayew, Kevin Prince Boateng and “Olele”- Keeper Richard Kingson made my day, they played so well. Many Ghanaians nearly lost hope by the 70th minute of the game, but managed to strengthen the little left within to see at least a goal from our boys (BlackStars) that will assure us of our three points. Ghana kept watch as chances for goals were spoilt and shots away from target, again Serbia’s keeper managed to keep few from entering the goalpost. A smile lit across my face as Serbia’s man fouled for a handball in their yard- it called for a penalty kick, Asamoah was the selected kicker, he had to put smiles on Ghana and Africa’s face, the referee’s whistle blew and GOOOOOOOOOAAAALLLLL!!! I just couldn’t hold back the shout or stay mute. Indeed JABULANI-Celebration and jubilation was all over the Continent of Africa esp. in Ghana, Vuvuzela’s went wild, and cars did their honking others without these had to shout. Amazing huh? Africa was behind Ghana and so did some parts of the globe. I thank God, am proudly African!
